chastetree berry helps women with sexual dysfunction

Female sexual dysfunction is surprisingly common, but there is no approved drug for treating it. Drugs fail to outperform, or barely outperform a placebo. So, there is no real treatment. Until now!

Actually, though there are no drugs for female sexual dysfunction, several herbs have been shown to help, including fennel cream, ashwagandha, fenugreek, lemon balm and a combination of vitamin E, Korean red ginseng and eleuthero.

The great women’s herb, chastetree berry, has already been shown to improve sexual function on perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. Now, for perhaps the first time, chastetree berry has been shown also to help younger women of reproductive age.

Female sexual dysfunction can affect sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and pelvic pain/penetration, or a combination of these.

The new study was double-blind and gave 102 women either a placebo or 3.2-4.8mg of dried chastetree berry extract. The study lasted for 16 weeks. The length of the study is important because chastetree berry takes time to work. At the end of the study, the women in the chastetree berry group has a significantly higher overall score on the Female Sexual Function Index questionnaire.

Chastetree berry is the queen of women’s herbs. It specializes in PMS but helps everything from cyclical breast pain to painful periods to infertility and menopause. This study, and the earlier ones on menopausal women, adds female sexual dysfunction to the list of conditions for which chastetree berry is invaluable for women.
